I went and take a look at history plot to see what a good java application
could do there, after reading Joe Zbiciak email.

But even java couldn't do better that what is currently done by the stat
box. The plot isn't a GIF, it's produce by htlm code. If you take a look
at a html source you'll see that it's pretty ingenius.

A horizontal bar is produce by shading a cell and by setting it width with
a percent value compute by the stat box. You can go take a look, it's

This process make a huge html text file but it's still less than the
coresponding gif, and less work for the stat box.
